Uninstalling openfire service

I recently uninstalled openfire on my server and I have been looking through my back up logs and I have the following warning in the log:

“VSS Snapshot warning. File c:\program files (x86)\openfire\bin\openfire-service.exe is not present on the snapshot.”

I checked in services and the open fire service is still present.

How do I completely remove openfire and the services along with it?

System Details:

Windows Small Business Server 2008 x64

Looking through my registry (regedit) I would remove the following keys to completely remove the service…

They all point to openfire-service.exe.

(All three might not still exist)

HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\Openfire

HKLM\System\ControlSet002\Services\Openfire

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Openfire

I looked through the registry for the provided keys.I found and deleted:

HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\Openfire

HKLM\System\ControlSet002\Services\Openfire

But

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Openfire doesn’t exist

I will know in the morning if that did the trick. Thanks

Looks like that did the trick.
